The former Miss California threatened to leave the Larry King show after he asked her about her recent court settlement.
New York (WiredPRNews.com) – Former Miss California Carrie Prejean abruptly ended her interview with CNN’s Larry King this week after being asked a question she deemed inappropriate. As reported by E! Online, the beauty pageant queen, who was dethroned as Miss California in June following controversy over her answer to a question about same sex marriage at the 2009 Miss USA pageant, appeared to become agitated after being asked about her recent lawsuit settlement with the Miss California USA organization.
King is quoted as asking Prejean in the interview, “You accused [the organization] of a number of things, including religious discrimination—clearly an issue very important to you. Why did you settle?” Prejean is quoted as responding, “Larry, everything that was discussed in mediation—I’ll say it again—is completely confidential.”
King subsequently rephrased his question to ask the model about her motives and not the terms of the settlement, after which Prejean began removing her microphone and accusing the host of being inappropriate.
Keith Lewis, executive director of Miss California USA and Miss California Teen USA, is quoted in the report as releasing the statement following the interview, “ The public is finally getting a glimpse of the real Carrie Prejean who lives in her own delusional world…The childish behavior, her negative attitude, the sarcasm and condescending tone, the disrespect and continual lying she is demonstrating now is only a fraction of what we endured during her reign and after. Anyone who buys her book is supporting a woman who is actually the opposite of everything she claims to be. I sincerely hope she is able to get the psychological help I believe she has shown to clearly need.”
